This is a free course on joining two or more pieces of already-fired metal clay, also on adding fresh and/or dry clay to fired pieces. The techniques taught can be used to re-make or re-do a piece that is broken or one not up to your liking.
Kris demonstrates the process using two different projects.
This course gives you a good feel for what Kris' courses are like. Her courses contain tons of info, tons of photos, lots o’ videos with good camera angles, lots of resources, good graphics, and always mistakes for that extra mile of real-life learning.
First, Kris created I Love Silver for novice to expert metal clay artists and artisans, because she loves metal clay and wants to share.
Kris designs and creates fine and sterling silver, minuscule sculptures as pendants, earrings, charms, rings, and more. Her work features landscapes, wildlife, tracks, and bits of nature. Her medium is precious metal clay.
